General description

A classic special stage from recent years and also one of the most beautiful stages, La Mussara starts on flat surface and continues with a light upward section to cross the former military camp of Castillejos, with linked fast bends. At the junction of TV-7045, some 11.3km after the start, there is a steep descent filled with loops until reaching Vilaplana, a section that will be very hard for the brakes.

Spectator Area ZP-1

At the start, a section of fast bends which ends with a left-hand loop. Excellent views over Reus.
